First, the subject teaches how to process two-dimensional image as a signal without interpretation. Image acquisition, linear and nonlinear preprocessing methods and image compression will be studied. Second, image segmentation and registration methods will be taught. Studied topics will be practised on practical examples in order to obtain also practical skills.

Course outlines:

1. Digital image processing vs. computer vision. Objects in images. Digital image. Distance transform. Brightness histogram.
2. Physical foundation of images. Image acquisition from geometric and radiometric point of view.
3. Processing in the spatial domain. Convolution. Correlation. Noise filtration. Linear and nonlinear methods.
4. Fourier transform. Derivation of the sampling theorem. Frequency filtration of images. Image restauration.
5. Brightness and geometric transformations, interpolation. Registration I.
6. Edge detection. Multiscale image processing.
7. Color images and processing of color images.
8. Segmentation I.
9. Segmentation II.
10. Registration II.
11. Image compression.
12. Mathematical morphology.
13. Reserve.
